The Software Library: Apple Computer

The Apple II series (trademarked with square brackets as "Apple ][" and rendered on later models as "Apple //") is a set of home computers, one of the first highly successful mass-produced microcomputer products, designed primarily by Steve Wozniak, manufactured by Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) and introduced in 1977 with the original Apple II. In terms of ease of use, features and expandability the Apple II was a major technological advancement over its predecessor, the Apple I, a limited-production bare circuit board computer for electronics hobbyists that pioneered many features that made the Apple II a commercial success. Introduced at the West Coast Computer Faire on April 16, 1977, the Apple II was among the first successful personal computers; it launched the Apple company into a successful business (and allowed several related companies to start). Throughout the years, a number of models were sold, with the most popular model remaining relatively little changed into the 1990s.

"This collection represents the culmination of a 3 and a half year effort to help preserve some of the history of early computing. When I heard that Mike Harvey was unable to locate the Nibble Programs library I thought, 'someone should organize an effort to type the programs in and make them available.' Then Sam Stoddard submitted a set of 24 disk images containing 265 of the major Nibble programs and I found 20 old Nibble disks on eBay. I realized, with half of the Nibble library already...
